I've been looking for a copy of this short story anthology for such a long time, that I was really really pleased when I eventually found a copy of it in one of my favourite little bookshops in Bendigo.  Fans of Garry's work - both the Wyatt and Challis novels will probably find, as I did, that there are a few of these that ring bells in later full-blown novels.  There are also some that don't and there are some that have obviously been informed by events in Garry's own life.

From the Blurb:

Straight... an insurance investigator recalled to his childhood home uncovers a body and ghosts from his past.

Bent... an unseen stranger confuses a crime writer with the characters who stalk the pages of his books.

Barbara Vine... a conservator restoring a flood-damaged Venice crypt suspects that he's been implicated in a murder.
